School will be CLOSED all day on Friday 2nd March due to freezing weather conditions.
See you all on Monday for business as usual!
I cannot believe it is term 4 already.
This term started with a fantastic class trip to CONCORDE last week. We’ll be learning some information about the history of flight as we work our way through the next few weeks.
In science, we are learning about multiple concepts – all of which fit in brilliantly with our flight themed learning. We’ll be making rocket launchers as we learn about ‘thrust’ and speed, and a little bit about space! We are learning some facts about how speed travels through air and water too.
We’ve had a fabulous day in Class 5 – learning about Titanic.
Over the past few weeks, children have been busy exploring the ship – how it was built, who worked on it, where it sailed from and how big it was. As well as this we have been busy designing menus for 1st and 3rd class passengers, advertising jobs on Titanic and making leaflets showing the different facilities on board.
We finally looked at why she sank and who were the possible people to blame.
Today, Mrs Wilde made huge icebergs out of ice to illustrate how much of the berg can be seen from above the water. We also talked about how they are formed and looked at some pictures of glaciers.
Children came into school today dressed at Titanic passengers and we had afternoon tea and sampled some lovely, homemade cakes and savoury bits! Well done everyone, you looked fabulous!
3RD CLASS PASSENGERS
SATS tests for Year 6 children will be from Monday 14th May until Thursday 17th May 2018.
We try our very best not to put any pressure on our Year 6 children for these tests and we already know that doing needless hours of revision can become very boring. We do however, like your children to be as prepared as they possible can be. With this in mind, please encourage your child to log on to the following websites which will help revising the key facts more of a fun experience!
Follow the links below for different revision activities.

Happy New Year everyone!
We hope everyone had fantastic fun-filled holidays.
This term our main topic is TITANIC.
We’ll be exploring how and where the ship was built, who the passengers were and how Titanic met its fate. We’ll also learn about the route the Titanic took and the geography of where the passengers came from around the world.
All the children have been given a real passenger to investigate and learn about; eventually we will find out if they died or survived the tragedy.
In SCIENCE we’ll be learning about forces and in particular water and air resistance, gears, levers and pulleys. This will slot in nicely with our Titanic topic.
In English, we’ll be writing newspaper reports, diaries and recounts. We’ll be supporting our topic by using the internet to research and retrieve information. We will also focus on poetry and developing our reading comprehension and grammar.
In Maths, we’ll be concentrating on reasoning skills. We’ll look at algebra, ratio and proportion, division and multiplication problems, as well as shape.
